    I was thinking as I read this, that I feel insulated from things going on around me. As though very little gets through to make a profound impact. That would be more like numb, because when it does affect me then I am rarely neutral.

    Does that make sense?

    Yes, I would say that I'm the same way, but I always like to think that I maintain my objectivity despite how profoundly affected I am by something. Whether that's true or not, I'm not sure.

    That's an ideal I developed as an adolescent when facing some extreme emotional scenarios. It felt like I learned to think in two concurrent streams, one that experienced the pain, and one that observed it. I always had this second, observing self that would analyze my experiencing self. It has allowed me to have a very high emotional tolerance. I can experience rather extreme states of emotion and still function rationally and as needed. There are many scenarios that get to other people that do not phase me at all when I'm thinking primarily as an observer. It's why I rarely get offended or angry.

    (It's actually a trait rather unlike the rest of my INF family. From what I can tell they don't have a concurrent observing self. Mine first developed clearly when I was away from home for the first time at school at age 16. When I try to help people who are depressed, it usually involves helping them hook into that objective self. Some, like my brother, can't do it.)

    Oh, I so identify with this. Sometimes I worry that it's a form of dissociation and if I engage in it too much I'll split in two.
